Southern National Congress Will Meet In Montgomery
By Alabama Public Radio
Montgomery, AL – The Southern National Congress will hold its first meeting next March in Montgomery. Organizers say the meeting will try and bring together as many as one-thousand people to create a permanent forum for the expression of distinct Southern interests, grievances, and solutions. Supporters say the Congress is an organization of Southerners who feel disenfranchised by today's political system. The Southern independence group The League of the South is organizing the event. Opponents say the League is a hate group.
